My new seeds are here.

I ordered Corno di Toro Rosso (Red bulls horn) seeds from
Ohio Heirloom Seeds, and they sent me two free packets. The same pepper in yellow and one called Quadrato Giallo D'Asti, which I suspect is a yellow bell pepper. For tomatoes, I'm going with Big Zac ( current worlds largest tomato record holder),Radiator Charlies Mortgage lifter,Beefsteak, and Aunt Gerties Gold. I have a friend who has a greenhouse and he said he'd start the seeds for me. the Italian peppers are supposed to be very prolific. I'm tired of peppers that produce 3-4 nice ones about September 1st. I'm going to try to plant the peppers in a block 10 inches apart. I think maybe with the plants too far apart there is a pollination problem.
Corno di Toro Rosso
This Italian pepper goes by the common name “Red Bull’s Horn”. Fruit turn a stunning red when ripe and have a long, curved, tapered shape. Fruit are 6-10 inches long x 1 ½ inches wide at shoulder. Please be aware that these peppers can have a mild spiciness, though they are still regarded as sweet peppers. A traditional favorite of Italy. 75 seeds minimum.
Open-Pollinated, 72 days from transplant.
